School Board 2.0 Meeting Set

I wrote last month about meeting with the Clovis Unified technology subcommittee of our school board, but the meeting was postponed.  The meeting has been rescheduled for this Wednesday and thanks to several of you, I have refined the 30 minute presentation.  The purpose is to: A) Increase the understanding of 2.0 and B) To encourage more ongoing education for students and teachers in our district.  The presentation is here.

Susan Enns Funk suggested adding in “RSS Feeds” which was a great idea, so now I will show “Google Reader” and how my Word Press blog tracks visitors.

In my two page handout, on one page, I have quotes from various “2.0” gurus and on the second page is a visual and comparison of web 1.0 and 2.0.  The quotes I have chosen to use are as follows:

Web and School 2.0

  • “If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” – John Dewey (From Chris Lehmann’s blog)

School 2.0 is being used to think about what schools will look like in the future…it is a move from an industrial to information economy, and a change in skills that are valuable to employers.”   – Steve Hargadon on the School 2.0 Wiki


  •  “Web 2.0 and School 2.0 is increasingly about:  conversations that people have (blogs/wikis),  the control of people who use it (RSS/Aggregators), and connecting people through their ideas (blog linking and search engines).” 
    David Warlick on the Classroom 2.0 Wiki

We cannot teach our students to be literate in this world by continually blocking and filtering access to the sites and experiences they need our help to navigate.”
Will Richardson on the Classroom 2.0 Wiki 

It is important to keep in mind that just blocking access to social web sites at school is not the end of the story. Most of the misuse of these sites takes place at home, but still affects the classroom. We have to teach our students about the safe and proper use of social web sites.”
Anne Bryant, Executive Director, National School Boards Association, Dec. 2006


  •  “Library 2.0 is a conversation.  Conversations are organic.  They go where they go.  They grow where the grow.  The organization that listens best extracts the most value.” – Peter Bromberg as part of his Library 2.0 Manifesto 

Learn to Learn, Adapt to Change, Scan the Horizon.”
Michael Stephens on his Blog making library predictions for 2007

Page 2 of the handout includes two graphics:

The presentation is here.  Let me know if you’d add anything else.
